I'm not sure if this is the proper forum to bring this up, but I just need to say that I can appreciate someone's financial situation and trying to get a quality piece of bass or bass related gear at an unbelievably astounding price, but realize that most of us on TB are not rock stars nor are we charitable organizations. We work hard and sacrifice to obtain the gear we have. If you want to low-ball me, then give it a shot but don't wax on about your rent or tuition being due or your car breaking down. I DON"T CARE. I don't meant to sound insensitve but I don't personally know most of you and I have no idea whether or not that is all true or not. If you are so financially destitute, then perhaps you should save that lowball offer and apply it to paying your rent or tuition or getting that car fixed.
